Dark Violet Hybrid Skullcap

November 10, 2017 Back to Picks >

Scutellaria x ‘Dark Violet’

‘Dark Violet’ is a hybridized variety. Woody gray-green foliage contrast the neon purple flowers. It has a tidy, mounding habit where scallop shaped blooms peek above compact spikes. It is a butterfly and bee attractant for the pollinator promoters. It is also rabbit resistant and drought tolerant. Plant in full sun, the hotter and harsher conditions the better it will perform. Occasional shearing can help maintain its uniform appearance. Blooming from Spring to Fall add a pop of color to containers, the borders of beds or rocky landscape. Grows to 6″ tall x 10-15″ wide. Perennial.
